RightFit, a new non-for-profit organization, will launch a multifaceted pilot program at Holy Angels Catholic School beginning in January 2017. RightFit's mission is to provide an after-school program that create an opportunity for elementary school students to build positive relationships with public safety personnel and fight childhood obesity through nutrition-oriented education and physical activity. The program will be made possible by partnerships with Indianapolis Public Schools, the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, and other community partners.
The pilot program will run three days per week from January through June 2017. Holy Angels and three IPS schools will participate.
- An incentivized exercise program staffed by Indianapolis Public Safety
- Volunteer Support utilized beyond public safety for staffing exercise and tutoring sessions
- Dinner will be provided at no charge to all student participants
This is a wonderful opportunity for our students at Holy Angels, and more information, including registration, will be shared in the coming weeks!
